HarbourFront Bus Interchange is a small bus interchange located at HarbourFront, at the foot of Mount Faber. It is bordered by Seah Im Road on the west edge and Seah Im Food Court on the south edge.
The terminal has a single vehicular entrance and exit along Seah Im Road, and all berths are right-angled (or end-on) berths, which are used for both the parking of buses and the boarding/alighting of passengers. There are multiple pedestrian access routes: one leading to HarbourFront MRT station along the east edge, another leading to Seah Im Road on the west edge, and several leading to Seah Im Food Court which is built just adjacent to the interchange.
The interchange remains largely unmodified, but recent upgrading works in 2011/2012 have made all berths accessible to wheelchair boarding and alighting, and given the interchange a fresher look as a whole.
In Year 2011/2012, the terminal was renovated with wheelchair ramps for every bus bay, for the convenience of wheelchair-bound passengers. In 2016, additional TV screens were installed at selected bus berths.
A pedestrian overhead bridge spans across Telok Blangah Road, linking the interchange to bus stops across the road, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch building, the HarbourFront Tower One building and the HarbourFront Centre building.
